[Barnabas and Paul] preached the good news in that city and won a large number of disciples. Then they returned to Lystra, Iconium and Antioch, strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain true to the faith.

Acts 14:21-22

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Do you know a new Christian? Do you have friendships with new believers? Peter, Paul, and Barnabas remind us that becoming a Christian can be challenging to these new believers. Many of them face rejection, hardship, and ostracization from their former friends and family (1 Peter 4:3-5). So let’s make sure we don’t JUST share the Gospel with them, but let’s ALSO stand by them, check on them, strengthen them, encourage them, and equip them to serve and pass on their faith.

My Prayer…

Loving Father, please be with the new Christians in our church and within my friendship circle. Please use me to be a consistent source of encouragement and strength for them. Please use my life as an ongoing positive influence with them. In Jesus’ name, I pray and ask for your blessing on new believers. Amen.
